HP has unveiled an enterprise-class storage disk array that it says provides organizations with lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for traditional storage workloads in mission-critical environments.
“Large enterprises rely on mission-critical applications to drive their businesses, which means that applications and data must remain available at all times, without exception,” HP said in release.
HP XP7 Storage offers a combination of “six 9s—or 99.9999%”—uptime, which translates to less than 31.5 seconds of application downtime per year, as well as always-on disaster recovery protection and increased system density, HP said.
Capable of delivering 3 million IOPS (I/O per second) with submillisecond response times, it has three times the performance of the previous generation of XP Storage.
“Today’s mission-critical workloads cannot afford to forfeit performance or scalability for increased disaster recovery and data protection,” said David Scott, senior vice president and general manager, HP Storage.
The HP XP7 Storage will be available in May with pricing starting at US$462,000.
